... A Fearless Champion of the Truth / George Bernard Shaw

I have entered into a great inheritance from the Athenians, from Shakespear and Molière, from Goethe, Mozart, and Wagner, and from the great novelists who came to the rescue when the stage had fallen into contempt, not to mention later legacies from Ibsen and the Russians; and I have spent this magnificent fortune prodigally in the face of the world.

I Am a Classic But Am I a Shakespear 7 hief?

And long after Shelley and yet still longer before Ibsen, came Karl Marx, whose indictment of bourgeois civilization, based wholly on English facts, utterly destroyed its high moral reputation and started throughout Europe a fire of passionate resolution to dethrone it and tear down its idols and laws and government, compared to which the commotion raised by Ibsen’s Doll’s House and Ghosts was a storm in a teacup.

An Aside.
